for netanyahu but barack obama on this issue. the supreme leader under the pressure of sanctions will decide to accept meaningful curbs on his nuclear program, or the president is going to have to decide. what does he do about a program that is approaching nuclear weapons threshold? >> if we look at the nomination and likely confirmation of a new secretary of state john kerry and chuck hagel at defense however problematic that confirmation hearing goes, what do you think the president is saying with this new national security team about what he wants to accomplish in the world in a second term? >> well, i think in the case of senator hagel, i think he will be confirmed. i think the choice there fits very well with what the president said in his inaugural speech he mentioned a decade of war is ending. his job will be to get u.s. armed forces out of afghanistan in a responsible way but to get them out. and then to look at cutting the defense budget. i think those are the two principle responsibilities that the president wants to see him fulfill. and hagel is the right man for that kind of job.

of chicago. this year, now president obama addressed the same issue at his second inauguration. >> obama: our journey is not complete until all of our children from the streets of detroit to the hills of appalachia to the quiet lanes of newtown know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm. >> jennifer: sadly our children are not safe from harm. in fact, a 15-year-old girl who performed at that inauguration was killed yesterday by a shooter in chicago. she was shot in the back as she huddled under a canopy in a park seeking protection from a rain storm. she was only a mile from the president's home on chicago's south side. unbelievable. and from the streets of chicago to the halls of congress the debate continued today as wayne lapierre testified in senate hearings on gun violence. a question to wayne lapierre, dick durbin pointed directly to chuck's gun store. >> purchasers buy the guns there and they end up in the hands of criminals in chicago. we have to put an end to this. mr. lapierre some of your colleagues tell me senator you don't get t
ultimately polarize and lead to more gridlock. mr. obama ignored this issue at his first term and some say now he really wants to make it part of his legacy and get serious and get real reforms. there is also worry that this could become ongoing fight and it becomes a political wedge for republicans and immigrants and senate would be orchestrating that. marco rubio signed on to big comprehensive reform plan this week. that's a big change for him. he spent much of last year warning republicans to do the whole comprehensive reform ran the possibility of collapsing under it own weight. he wanted to do smaller bite sized pieces of it and change to do this. >> picture thing. it's all speculation. i want to wait until this clarify itself on what exactly they are going to talk about specifically and krauthammer and i laid it out last night. real quick, rosen, egypt, military coup, throw out the islamic brotherhood over there? >> there was a warming over the weekend from one of the top generals in the egyptian military to the effect that collapse of the government could be near. people who are cha
. >> if fox news and i are the only thing keeping the republicans from caving to barack obama on every issue, i'm not paid enough. >> it almost seems to be on parity about a president complaining about the conservative press and going the other way and talking to the people saying the conservative press is doing it wrong. in an interview with the new republic, rather than be focused on the employment situation or the debt, the big problems that obama has are fox news and me. obama said to the new republic, he's getting a lot more done without fox news and rush limbaugh, and the rest of the media is in the tank and the rest of the media has fallen in line. there is no opposition, other than fox news and limbaugh. >> one of the reasons that fox news and i stand stand out like sore thumbs is the rest of the media is gone, in the tank, and the rest of the media long ago ceased doing their job, they're not holding obama accountable, they're on board. they are part of the agenda advancement team. >> greta: so why is the the president singling out and blaming fox for a lack of bipartisanship in was
and address issues. president obama heads to las vegas to unveil his own immigration reform plan. he promised the reform in his 2008 but failed to deliver it in his first term. >> cenk: the reason why he failed to deliver it, of course, the republicans opposed him. the republicans seem a little more open to reform now. let me show you why. 71% of latinos voted for president obama. only 27% voted for governor romney. all of a sudden the republicans are thinking, maybe the latinos are not so bad. interesting. i'm sure that they, of course, vote based on principle, though. let me show you what is in the proposal. four major goals, providing a means for citizenship to immigrants who are already here. number two coming out with an employment verification system to make sure employers do not hire those people who are in the country illegally. number three letting in more low-skill workers and allowing employers to hire immigrants if they can show they couldn't recruit an u.s. citizen with the same skills. that's for corporate america. i'll explain that in a little bit. and number four, awarding gre
on women, peace, and security. >> i do. and i actually was reading it last night. president obama issued that and i think it's really important. with respect to afghanistan, we have made it clear, the administration has made it clear, and i will support that when i become secretary of state, and that is commitment -- that is the commitment if there is a negotiation with the taliban, one of the conditions is they have to give up any association with al qaeda. they have to give up the commitment -- commit to nonviolence, but most importantly with respect to this issue, they must commit to respect the constitution of afghanistan and the current status of women and girls within their society. >> i have two more questions. you have been a supporter of see call before, the convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women. i know it's a tough issue here. i don't think it should be, but it is. i just want to make sure you continue to support the radfication, then i have one quick question on the subject. >> the answer is yes. let me just say on that i look forward to meeting wit
the republicans from caving to barack obama on every issue, i am not paid enough. >> it is almost unparitiy, talking to the press and saying it is conservative press is doing it on. >> in an interview with "the new republic," rather than be focused on the employment situation or the debt, the big problems that obama has are fox news and me. obama said to "the new republic," he would get a lot more done without fox news and rush limbaugh. the rest of the media's in the tank. everybody else has fallen in line. there is no opposition. other than fox news and limbaugh. one of the reasons that fox news and i stand out like sore thumbs here is because the rest of the media is gone, they're in the tank, they have long ago ceased doing their job. they are not reporting, they are not curious, they are not holding obama accountable. they are on board. they are part of the agenda advancement team. >> why is the president singling out and blaming fox for a lack of bipartisanship in washington? chief political respondent byron york joins us. is fox guilty? or he doesn't like how fox challenges his polic
it matters. so jimmy, president obama taking this issue of immigration on the road today. he did so, though, back in 2011 without a lot of success. but today, dan pfeiffer is tweeting out that the president will applaud the bipartisan senate agreement, saying it's consistent with his long-held view. but jimmy, this bill is not a sure thing in the senate, let alone the house. so explain why there is con flicking uniformity on this. >> well, listen. i think it's great that the six senator who is got up on the podium yesterday and said that they have a framework for an agreement for a framework to get immigration done, is great. the problem is this. the problem is -- and that's a great first step, but you've got to put it down on paper. and once you start putting things down on paper, you actually start writing legislation. and then you ask members to start voting on this legislation, and that's when it gets remarkably murkier in the building behind me. think about it in 2007. you know, you had 22 republicans that are currently sitting in the united states senate today who voted against bush's
the headline president obama is not pleased. he speaks about the issue of guns and tries to express his understanding of the cultural divide over the issue of guns. calling it the reality of rural versus urban divide on the issue. he says if you grew up and your dad gave you a hunting rifle when you were 10 and you spent the day with him and your uncles and ta became part of the family tradition you can see why you would be protective of that. he says advocates of gun control have to listen more. he also speaks about the fact that he has been skeet shooting all the time at camp david daying he does that with guests. i think that is new information for a lot of people. the question is have you ever fired a gun before? that's not where he finishes off. he fires off on other topics, as well, expressing his impatience with political enemies of sorts some republicans who he he thinks are unwilling to compromise and with the media that too often goes to the sides and never looks for the middle ground a it addresses them, as well. and he weighs in on the issue of football. he said if he had a
on women, peace, and security. >> i did. i read last night that president obama issued to that. i think it is important. with respect to afghanistan, the administration has made it clear -- the commitment that if there is in negotiation with the taliban, one of the conditions is they have to give up any association with al qaeda. with respect to this issue, they must commit to respect the constitution of afghanistan and the current status of women and girls within their society. >> you have been a supporter of the convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women. it is a tough issue. i want to make sure you continue to support the ratification. >> the answer is yes. i look forward to meeting with the committee probably so we can talk about treaties and america's interest. >> i think there could be some reservation that we could agree on that would resolve some of the underlying current of this agreement. we should move forward on that. last question is about the keystone xl pipeline. how would you ensure any decision takes into consideration the potential impact on wate
with democrats and signature domestic policy issues and then 9/11 happened and the wars occurred. really, the nation polarized again, right versus left. i don't think we have come out of that. obama inherited that. but he talked about bridging that and governing in a way to bring right and left together. i happening the number-1 failure of president obama is not the economy. it's his failure to find a way to bring us all together. >> eric: chris, what about that? >> well, i think it's easy to put it on president obammasm the fact is, this has been building and arguably building for years. the division that we have between the parties. the issues are difficult. the solutions are more complex. it is not easy to find that compromise. it is easy to say that it's president obama's fault. i heard that from the previous president. but the reality is, you cannot dance with someone if they keep saying no. when you have a republican party that is divided amongst itself, in terms of where the country should go, how do you find that common ground that basically unites the country? it's extremely dif

to work on issues like iran and syria. that's just more obama cronyism. the guy fails at one job, so they give him a cushy post solving the middle east. [ laughter ] folks, i applaud the obama administration's mature decision. clearly these detainees are going to be there until they die. so it's time we embrace gitmo as a part of this country. and not as a place for permanently imprisoning people without charges in a kafka-esque labyrinth of human despair but more as a terrorist retirement community jihadi meadows. [ laughter ] after all, like our seniors, they wear brightly-colored jumpsuits, they're often on a liquid diet, and we try our best not to think about them. [ laughter ] and who knows, guantanamo bay may even become popular with our own seniors. after all, it's just like florida but with fewer cubans. [ laughter ] we'll be right back.

peter the purity. >> i do and i was reading last night president obama issued that anything is really important that with respect to afghanistan with made it clear, the administration has made it clear and that is the commitment that if there is a negotiation with the tyler green, one of the conditions is they have to give up any association with al qaeda. they have to commit to nonviolence, the most with respect to this issue, they must commit to respect the constitution of afghanistan and the current status of women and girls within our society. >> tumor questions. you have been a supporter of the convention to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women. i know it's a tough issue here. i don't get should be, but it is. i want to make sure you continue to support the ratification and i have one quick question on another subject. >> the answer is yes i look forward to meeting with the committee privately some time how we can talk about treaties in america's interest. >> i think there could be some reservations we could agree on that could resolve some of the underlying curren
at the three big issues that newly elected president obama and prime minister netanyahu have to address. and that's the iranian nuclear program, the conflict ininria, and the israeli-palestinian issue. and so even as we reported on the elections, we've been looking at those three issues. of course we talked to a lot of israelis. but yesterday for instance we went up to the golan heights which is, you know, a land that the israelis captured from the syrians. and that is really where the two countries meet up. you can see how very close the conflict is you can hear the boom of firing from the other side. and looked at the defensive measures that israeli is taking to try to prevent any spillover. we also this week went into gaza, just two months after the israeli-gaza conflict there, for example, to assess how people are feeling and in particular about how they feel about the prospects for israeli-palestinian peace. so we hope to have some textured stories next week. >> brown: all right. we will look for those next week. margaret warner in jerusalem, thanks some of. >> warner: thank you, j
appointed by republican presidents-- said mr. obama had done an inappropriate end-run around the senate. but white house spokesman jay carney took issue with the ruling. >> the decision is novel and unprecedented. it contradicts 150 years of practice by democric and republican administrations. so we respectfully but strongly disagree with the rulings. accord together congressional research service something like 280 plus intrasession recess appointments by, again, democratting and republican administrations dating back to 1867. >> sreenivasan: if the decision stands, it could invalidate hundreds of decisions made by the labor board. moreover, the body would not have enough members to issue decisions, effectively shutting it down. the ruling also could spell trouble for richard cordray, the head of the consumer financial protection board. he was not part of this legal case, but he was appointed in the same manner on the same day. for more on all this, we turn to steven greenhouse of "the new york times." nice to be here. >> steven, just back us up a little bit. what are some of these dec
issues that newly elected president obama and prime minister netanyahu have to address. and that's the iranian nuclear program, the conflict in syria, and the israeli-palestinian issue. and so even as we reported on the elections, we've been looking at those three issues. of course we talked to a lot of israelis. but yesterday for instance we went up to the golan heights which is you know, a land that the israelis captured from the syrians. and that is really where the two countries meet up. you can see how very close the conflict is you can hear the boom of firing from the other side. and looked at the defensive measures that israeli is taking to try to prevent any spillover. we also this week went into gaza just two months after the israeli-gaza conflict there, for example to assess how people are feeling and in particular about how they feel about the prospects for israeli-palestinian peace. so we hope to have some textured stories next week. >> brown: all right. we will look for those next week. margaret warner in jerusalem, thanks some of. >> warner: thank you jeff. >> brown
it to that, they have leverage. >> bret: a.b.? >> tucker right, we don't for sure is president obama wants a bill which ultimately will be a compromisement but he is not running for re-election and the fact that congressional democrats who have been active on this issue for years, members of the congressial hispanic congress asked him not to come out in an aggressive way and try to best the senate bipartisan group with his own bill. that's why he said today if they don't do it i will have one but he talked about his principles. that is a sipe he wants a legacy and he wants a bill. now, republicans at the same time because there is such a lack of trust are trying to win the hearts and minds of their own conservative base, by saying this isn't amnesty. we are not going to give the president a win and we don't trust him either. but they want a bill as well. i'll assume both sides want a bill because they need a bill. we can be cynical about it later. but it is in president obama's interest for a legacy and the republican party interest for winning a coalition that gives them the white house a
refuses to federalize the issue. obama's speech, then, was sound and fury. you're here for your big conference and i just wanted to ask you when you were listening to president obama's inaugural address and heard the remarks, did you spike the football? >> i honestly cried. i was sitting on the steps of the capitol with my 11-year-old daughter and to hear the president inauguration after inauguration was a powerful moment. >> we're going to have to break away for just a second. here's secretary of state hillary clinton. >> i was very honored when john asked me to take part in this because john is is the right choice, to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we've heard from both the chairman and ranking member, as we just heard from senator warren, he will bring about a leadership that is ex am plear. he has acted as the young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee through the time that he served with such distinction as its chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me person
he disagreed with president obama on the increase in troops in afghanistan. again, key issues that would play out if he gets the job at the pentagon. >> chris, we've seen these things before. this one at least is getting off to a very uncertain start. >> yes. >> we know the drama and all of the positions that have been taken pro and con and the lobbies that have been taken against him, and it's been pretty fierce, and i know he has been doing murder boards and he has been practicing at the pentagon. they've got really good people working with them. you might have expected that he would have, as kelly points out, anticipated this line of questioning from john mccain. >> well, and let me just add one other thing. he is a former senator. he is not unaware of how these things go. this is not someone who is sort of a newbie to processes like this. you know, look. i found the mcdane-hagel confrontation incredibly compelling for a number of reasons. not the least of which is the -- these were two men that were the best, lit rate the best of friends. chuck hagel was the chairman of jo
is working on its own immigration bill and president obama will address the issue tomorrow in las vegas. the bipartisan senate plan includes a path to citizenship, but illegal immigrants will have to undergo a background check and pay a fine and back taxes before gaining legal status in the united states. all that is contingent on securing borders. the proposal provides for increased use of drones, more personnel and improved infrastructure and it would create an employment verification system and improve the process for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino
situation room." a major speech on a hot button issue. president obama speaking out a while ago in las vegas about comprehensive immigration reform. his remarks come one day after a bipartisan group of senators laid out a framework for a possible bill that would be a path to citizenship to increase border security. but the president also made it clear if congress can't act quickly on that, he'll put forward his own bill. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by. detail for us what is in the president's proposal? >> reporter: wolf, detail is the key word. in the past, the president has been accused of standing for policy proposals short on specifics. not today. president obama laid out a plan for comprehensive immigration reform that would change the immigration system in three central ways. first, it would strengthen workplace enforcement, specifically by making it harder to hire illegal immigrants in the workplace and make it harder for illegals to get jobs here. secondly, it would create a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented workers who are already
looking at 2014, but 2016. around this issue. and engaging that obama coalition. for so long, the passion and enthusiasm had been on the gun lobby side and now you see on the gun control side. i think there had, i think, in some ways been a bit of an apprehension and linking sandy hook to the things going on in chicago for many, many years. over the last three years. 270 school-aged children in chicago have been gunned down. >> yeah. >> that's many, many, many sandy hooks and so i think this incident tragic as it is will in some ways link these two events and link what has been going on a lot of times in the cities around increase gun control and background checks to this larger conversation. we'll see, of course, obama in minneapolis, on monday. doing interesting things there. but again, i think the assault weapons ban, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of
